Da Ieri sera sono scaricabili le WWSAPI (Windows Web Services API) in versione Release Candidate dal
I have Win XP sp3, VS2008 (C++ included), the API of WWS and the interest to try WWSAPI.
However, the wind 7 SDK RC has an intimidating size. Is this possible to install or at least identify the necessary components for using WWSAPI?
RE: Windows 7 SDK RC
You can customize installation of Windows SDK. Just do not download the whole ISO image. Start web install which runs setup.exe and you can select components you need. You need to install windows headers, libraries and tools.
Since Win7 has RTM'd, where can we get the final redistributables for XP and Vista?
The RTM version of the WWSAPI for XP/Vista/2003/2008 is not available yet. We are finishing up the final quality gates and finalizing the license for it. It will be available later this year.
I m wondering where i can find the dll Webservices. Is it available in installer package for Windows XP ?
Yes, webservices.dll is included in the installer package and it cannot be deployed outside of the package. The RTM version of the installers for Windows XP is not available yet at this point.
Thanks for your reply Nikola.
One more question ! I managed to find the required installer package. Now i m trying to write the code that calls the generated interfaces by wsutil. My problem is that I want to add to the envelop of the soap message three fields :
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"
How is it possible? Is there any special dedicated services to do so ?
Thanks a lot
